The Classic Clamshell


How do I love thee?


Let me count the ways...






































Now this would definitely be my fantasy, diving into a heap of clam shells!

I'm right there with you as well. I have shells scattered throughout my home. I love the colors and textures - they are magical to me. Probably because I was born in and lived my whole life here in the desert!

Wow Terri, what photos!

When I was growing up in Sydney every house had a big old clam shell hanging about in the garden, and we were told dreadful stories of putting a foot down while diving, and being trapped...

Great post Terri! I too love clam shells! Thanks for sharing all of these images. My favorite one is the huge shell on the console. I would plant succulents in it! Looking forward to meeting you soon.

Yes, I love the shells. I would love to have them all over my house...but my house is sooooo landlocked in Oklahoma that I just feel like decorating with shells is silly here. But if I lived even a few hours from the beach they'd be all over my house and yard. Did you ever see the photos of a fireplace mantel completely covered in shells? I think it was in Cottage Living a long time ago. I thought it was just over the top fabulous. Actually, I'm going to go look for that photo now.

Oh, so stunning! The nautical look is REALLY hard to pull off, in my opinion, these are put together so beautifully, they aren't cheesy, but chic! XO!
